Need help tweaking this build

Last response: in Systems

What I'm currently upgrading from:
Phenom II X4 955 BE
Geforce GTX 460
4gigs RAM

I'm looking to spend under $1000. I appreciate any help. This wish list doesn't include a case. I'm definitely open to suggestions for one of those.

I currently have an earthwatts 550w power supply, dvd drive, sufficiently large HDD, and KB/Mouse/Monitor. If I am under budget I will replace my KB and mouse.

The 3570K is $10-$20 more. I'd recommend it. Also, the HYper 212 EVO Cooler for OC'ing.

You missed the part where he has an H77 board. If not OCing, get an i5-3450. If you are, get the i5-3570k and an ASRock Z77 Extreme4.

I haven't even thought about overclocking.
